A recent issue of concern was the deterioration of the Herring Point (Naval Jetties) surf break at Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes. The jetty there had deteriorated, with rocks at the seaward end of the jetty all that was left. These rocks were almost like a little island, completely cut off from land. Currents had eaten away at what used to be the north side and ravaged the dune line. The bluff above, one of the highest elevations, in Delaware, is crumbling into the sea, jeopardizing the parking lot and historic buildings left over from the old World War II fort.
Lewes Sewage Treatment Plant - The City of Rehoboth Beach is looking into Ocean Outfall as an alternative to their Sewer Plant's outfall pipe in the Lewes/Rehoboth Canal - the chapter is opposed to this alternative!!!
The volunteers of the Delaware Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation have played a critical role in identifying the problems in Delaware's Inland Bays. The Chapter will make every effort to coordinate efforts with DNREC and the Center for the Inland Bays to develop and implement a plan toward cleaner water.
